Home Improvement Hacks

Sprucing up your home doesn’t have to be expensive. Here are some easy home improvement projects to enhance the look of your living space!

1. Cabinet makeover

Instead of spending money on replacing your kitchen cabinets, you can give a tired kitchen a fresh new look by replacing just the cabinet fronts. You will pay a fraction of the price, and no one will know it’s your old cabinets hiding behind those beautiful new doors.

2. Cover your countertops with contact paper

Granite countertops can be gorgeous, but they’re also incredibly pricey. Instead of spending a fortune for beautiful counters, try covering them with patterned contact paper. You’ll find plenty of granite lookalikes at home improvement stores and you can learn how to apply your knockoff covers neatly from DIY tutorials on YouTube.

3. Create a mirrored backsplash

All you need for this fantastic hack is a pack of self-adhesive mirror tiles, which retail for about $15 per 20-tile pack and can be found online or at a home improvement store. Use your tiles to create a mirrored backsplash in your kitchen. The mirrors will give the illusion of greater space and you won’t have to deal with grout and caulking. It’s an inexpensive way to make your kitchen sparkle!

4. Let the light in

Light fixtures can make or break an area in your home, and you don’t have to spend a fortune to get it right. Walk through your home and take note of the light fixtures that are outdated, paying close attention to highly visible areas. Then, take a trip to your local home improvement store or check online for trendy, striking light fixtures. For less than $100, you can give your house an entire new look!

5. DIY paint

If the walls in your home desperately need fresh coats of paint, look no further than your local home improvement store. You can find plenty of painting tutorials on YouTube, and you’ll only have to spring for the actual paint plus a few supplies. Best of all, when you’re in charge, you can get as creative as possible. Using painter’s tape and your imagination, you can paint interesting designs on your walls, like diamond contrasts or vertical and horizontal stripes.
